TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (7) . . . The Sequel!

This week's special bonus joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of CBC News (from Friday, April 1; link good at time of posting):
A man who tried to parachute off a Calgary office building is in hospital after smashing through a window on the 24th floor, sending broken glass flying through seven windows in the atrium below.

Police say they were called to the Canada Trust building in downtown Calgary about 11:10 p.m. Thursday night.

They found the 41-year-old parachutist on top of a pedestrian walkway.

He was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening pelvic, abdominal and back injuries.

Charges are pending, according to police.
